The rotary hammer is the workhorse of any construction site, providing the power and torque to drill and chisel in materials that range from concrete to steel. But the real differentiator among these power tools is putting all of that performance in a package that delivers great power at low weight – and that’s the story of the Bosch GBH18V-26 1" SDS-plus EC Brushless Rotary Hammer.
The Bosch GBH18V-26 rotary hammer delivers 1.9 Ft.-Lbs. of torque in a tool that weighs only 7.7 lbs. The ergonomic L-shape design offers great horizontal power transmission. Combined with a Bosch 6.0 Ah Lithium-ion battery, this is a power tool that will drill longer and hit harder than bigger tools with more weight.
The advantages of 2x motor life and less maintenance comes with the tool’s lighter weight and the reduced-size Bosch EC brushless motor. Bosch electronic precision control ensures soft-start (70 percent) to help avoid walking or skating. Dust extraction is seamless with the optional on-tool dust extraction adapter (available 2017).
The Bosch GBH18V-26 1" SDS-plus EC Brushless Rotary Hammer features proprietary KickBack Control, an integrated acceleration sensor that virtually stops the drill’s rotation during bit bind-up situations. It’s designed to reduce potential arm and wrist injuries. In addition, the tool includes industry-leading Bosch vibration control for added user safety and ease of use.
Bosch Electronic Cell Protection protects the battery against overload, overheating and depth discharge for longer runtime. Likewise, Bosch Electronic Motor Protection protects the motor against overload with integrated temperature management.
